What I do is to load the RemoteFrameBuffer package from SqueakMap,  
and set an RFB server going, then save the image.  Drop this image on  
your server and start it up.  You can then connect to this from any  
VNC client and load in your web apps, configure, etc, from the normal  
Squeak UI.

Yes, this is more of an issue.  There's no standard persistence  
(except for simply saving the Smalltalk image...).  And the options  
that are out there could be much easier to get started with.
